The 35-year-old champion is now entering the first stages of sparring at the Boys and Girls Club in Indio, California, with head trainers Joel and Antonio Diaz. This team of brothers oversee a training camp that includes other fighters from the exclusive Golden Boy Promotions stable, including Francisco "El Bandido" Vargas, Diego De La Hoya, Marcelino "Nino" Lopez, Vergil Ortiz Jr., Christian "Chimpa" Gonzalez and Oscar Duarte.

Mario Narvaez, who is the brother of former two-division world champion Omar "El Huracan" Narvaez, also forms an important part of the Matthysse team, while Federico Wittenkamp is in charge of his strength and conditioning training.

For the native of Trelew, Chubut, Argentina, this is not an ordinary training camp as his career will be defined by the result of this highly anticipated fight.
